Apogee Electronics DUET-MAC-IOS overview

  • 1Description

The Duet USB Audio Interface for iPad, Mac and Windows 10 from Apogee is a portable audio interface that builds on the success of the Duet 2 by adding compatibility with Windows 10 to Mac and iOS devices. For mac users, it provides a direct digital Lightning connection that allows for DC charging of the Apple device.

This interface is capable of making studio quality recordings of vocals, guitars, bass, keyboards, drums, and other sources. The unit's portability and option of being USB bus powered allows you to create music any time. The microphone preamps offer high-gain amplification for capturing performances clearly, and the outputs are capable of presenting detailed and well imaged sound for mixing and mastering.

The dual microphone preamps feature enhanced components and seamless, click-free transitions throughout the 75 dB of gain. The preamps are optimized for any sound source, so no matter what's being recorded, it gets captured in detail. The interface utilizes an ESS Sabre32 32-bit hyperstream DAC with circuitry to eliminate time domain jitter and provide ample dynamic range and low distortion conversion. A full color, high-resolution OLED display is the main control center for the Duet, providing visual feedback for multiple functions including metering, numeric value for input and output levels, input grouping, phase, muting, phantom power and Soft Limit indication. The display provides immediate status of the inputs and outputs without having to refer to Maestro or the host recording software.

Stereo headphones or left and right mono speaker outs can be assigned in pairs to output 1-2 or 3-4 or the low latency mixer, and each can be placed in stereo, mono, muted or dimmed modes. It is possible for a DJ to monitor a separate mix in headphones while sending a house mix to the club, a live performer to send a click track to in-ear monitors while sending a backing track to front-of-house, and a recording engineer to send a headphone mix to the performer while dedicating the main outputs to studio monitors.

For use with iOS devices, an optional Lightning or 30-pin cable may be purchased. The Duet ships with a USB cable for connecting to your Mac or PC.

    Apogee Electronics DUET-MAC-IOS reviews

    Duet USB Audio Interface for iPad, Mac & Windows 10 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple. Works and Sounds great If you need an affordable and portable interface to record audio, you've found it. As many people know, good pre's can make lower quality mic's shine and high quality mic's sound phenomenal. For the price the Duet does a great job. I don't use the iPad/iPhone recording aspect of it, I use it to record VO and instruments in DAW as well as use it as the output to my monitors (instead of the headphone jack on the computer) The sound coming in and going out sounds very clean. The portability is handy and although I didn't buy it for that, I've already taken it on location 3 times in the first week I've owned it and it's a lightweight device to travel with. The only downside (which I knew going in) is that it has breakout cables vs, connections in the i/o box, but that was part of the design intentionally to make it portable. I personally prefer connections in the box but it wasn't worth the investment to next larger version for what I use it for so the breakout cable is fine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good... I had it for a week but only used couple of times. Today I tried with a condenser mic for a vocal it sounds good, as expected... I didn't like Maestro app... Interface is very boring and has small buttons...
